A Note to Mama Coach

A Note to Mama Coach

by Lisa Wehry

Pick Me!

“OOHH! OOHH! Pick me! Pick me!” Do you ever remember thinking or even possibly yelling those very words as a child or even into your teen years? The truth is, we can feel this keenly even into our adulthood.

The question we have to ask ourselves (and then intentionally “pass on” to our children) is what or WHO defines my acceptance, my worth, and my value?

God tells us in His Word that “He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world…In love He predestined us for adoption to himself as sons/daughters through Jesus Christ…” Ephesians 1:4-5

He tells us that He called us by name, from the very beginning; His favor rests on us and He has cared for us with a care more intimate than that of a mother for her child…He has even counted every hair on our head! Next time we find ourselves hoping that some person, thing, or event will come along to give us that final feeling of inner well-being we so desperately desire, let us be reminded… It is our Heavenly Father.

Who created us, loves us with a love that endures forever and has the final say on our worth. We are God’s chosen ones, even if the world does not choose us. Bottom line, we have to get this settled in our own heart and mind before we can “pass it on” to our precious, chosen children.

Connect:  I’m sending 59 “One Another’s” in the link below. Print it off or make them into flash cards and go over them with your family maybe one a day/week whatever works for you. You can sticky tack it on their bathroom mirror or keep them in your car and review as you do your “mom taxi” job.

(*Note how many of them are about loving one another)
